I take it back. When I said just some time ago that I don't feel pregnant at all, well now I can definitely feel something. Lately I've been getting these sharp pains in my tummy, at least all the books say it is normal. It is just my uterus expanding and stretching, ugh! Last week, I dropped a glass so I bent to clean it up and when I stood up - I really winced with pain. But what was worse was I was afraid that by bending, I squished the baby or something. Simon's been assuring me not to worry, he said the baby's really protected and cushioned and he's right with the cushion bit because I have a small bump already. I have to remind myself all the time not to make sudden movements, that's usually when I get those sharp but very quick tummy pains. But aside from the pain, sometimes I think I can also feel something like very light butterfly wings fluttering in my tummy. I hope that's the baby swimming happily :).

I also tried prenatal yoga yesterday, I liked it a lot. Most of the ladies were already big, and one of them was even due in 3 weeks! They all look good and didn't struggle with the poses. We had some exercise where you have to do some stretching with a partner, and it wasn't awkward to my surprise. I found it quite funny though when we had to pelvic floor exercises - it's weird when you try contract and tighten your vagina muscles with 10 other ladies in the room doing it as well. The teacher made us close our eyes though so we won't see each other hehe.

Well today, I woke up early again to attend the normal Hatha yoga. The instructor was the same girl from yesterday and when she saw that I wasn't familiar with a lot of the yoga poses, she said I should just stick with the prenatal yoga next time. Ouch! I guess she was just worried that I would hurt myself or the baby so ok. I also didn't enjoy it a lot because for most of the poses, I had to do a variation of them so the teacher always call my attention to do a different pose instead of what the rest of the class are doing. When the class was over she came over to ask if it was my first time to do yoga, aray ko! I told her I've doing it before but I'm used to Bikram and not Hatha so I'm not really fluid with the downward dog and sun salutation and the rest. She even asked me since when did I start, and I was embarassed to say on and off since 2005. Haha. I didn't realize I looked so bad on the mat,  I tried to do what I can though and as for the rest I was just not pushing myself because I might hurt the baby. She apologized and said I can still attend her Hatha class if I want to or Collette's class(my teacher last week). So now, I don't think I'll go to her Hatha class. Anyway I'm not comfortable with the extra attention I get for the entire duration of the class. Her prenatal class is excellent so I'll still go for that.
